Ghassan Hage - Is Racism an Environmental Threat? - Wednesday 7th June

To be launched by Randa Abdel-Fattah, Associate Prof. Tess Lea, Jamie Parker MP

In this book, Ghassan Hage proposes that both racism and humanity’s destructive relationship with the environment emanate from the same mode of inhabiting the world: an occupying force imposes its own interest as law, subordinating others for the extraction of value, eradicating or exterminating what gets in the way. In connecting these two issues, Hage gives voice to the claim taking shape in many activist spaces that anti-racist and ecological struggles are intrinsically related. In both, the aim is to move beyond what makes us see otherness, whether human or nonhuman, as something that exists solely to be managed.
